(BUSINESS WIRE) Today, Sotheby’s shared its conclusion that Daniel S. Loeb would be an appropriate member of the Company’s Board of Directors. The Company also constructively acknowledged Mr. Loeb’s contributions to improving Sotheby’s condition over the past six months and the positive impact his insights have had on increasing value for shareholders.

Based on Third Point’s experience, a sole voice representing shareholder’s interests in the Boardroom will not be sufficient to bring about necessary change at Sotheby’s. For that reason, Third Point has consistently adhered to its request for numerous board seats. The Company was always well aware of Third ... Read more »
